BABY BOOMER AND GENERATION X professionals often struggle to find time for fitness among the crush of professional, family and social obligations. As a result, many 40+ professionals who once were in great shape are less fit and more stressed than ever.
That’s where Back in the Saddle to Fit: 10 Steps to Reclaiming Athletic Fitness for the Busy Professional comes in. Part informational, part inspirational, the book includes anecdotes from past and present athletes, as well as strategies to find time for exercise from a 40-something marketing professional and certified fitness trainer.
Back in the Saddle to Fit includes a fitness plan that requires only 3.5 percent of your time each week. It also discusses the “60/40 Proposition” of nutrition and exercise, how to “eat like an adult” when faced with unhealthy food options, and how to get past "conversational inertia" and excuses that keep us at the starting line.
Your journey to reclaiming athletic fitness begins today. No excuses. It’s on. Ready, set. Let’s go.
